Discover the youngest history of the Rammelsberg mine! Original mining machines can be experienced in live action during this guided tour. Get an impression of how the use of these machines lead to fundamental changes in the lifes of miners.
You will ride the mine train into the mountain, just like the miners did. Once at your destination, your tourguide will explain (and show) the most important working methods and machines of 20th century mining. At the end of your shift, another trainride provides an easy way back out to daylight.
With the remodeled train wagon „Rolli-Mobil“ up to two visitors using a wheelchair or with limited mobility can be taken into the mine as well.
